Liverpool forward Sadio Mane: Barcelona best team in world

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane rates Champions League opponents Barcelona as the best team in the world.

Ahead of their semifinal, the 27-year-old also claimed that he will relish the opportunity to play at the Camp Nou.

"It was good experience to play last year's [Champions League] final, but tomorrow we will face the best team in the world and we want to take advantage of that experience," Mane said at Liverpool's pre-match press conference.

"The Camp Nou is a wonderful stadium and since I was young, I have been watching Barcelona and LaLiga [Santander]; I love watching football.

"It will be great to play in a stadium like that."
